[ ♪ theme ♪ ] >> announcer: broadcasting >> broadcasting across the nation on your radio and on current t.v., this is the bill press show. now filling in for bill, here's john fugelsang. >> this is the bill press show, this is john filing. this is october 1. it is cold in our nation's capitol. i hope it's more pleasant wherever you happen to be listening. a lot of stuff to talk about today actually. want to know your thoughts on the first debate coming up this week. if you have advice for the president or governor romney? my advice was taking the bolt out of your neck. i think he has looked better ever since he has done it. he said he is rehearsing his zingers. i can't wait to see those rolled out. what questions do you think governor romney and
in a landslide. stupid heads. >> stupid idiots! >> maybe we shouldn't have defunded education every chance we got as republicans. the whole country is full of dumb people who will vote for obama. >> can't solve a problem i throw money at it unless it is tax cuts for the rich and whatever. education. the one problem you can't fix by throwing money at it according to the republicans. >> stephanie: it is really tough to imagine why the obama policies for four more years will be right for families around america. i'm sure though that your guy is leading in the food stamp voters poll. >> can i ask you that? >> yeah. >> stephanie: is this what they're doing that preemptively insulting obama voters? >> everyone is stupid and you're on food stamps. >> i'm going to break with tradition and agree with him in one regard in that a lot of working class white voters who never thought they would end up on food stamps who are not your standard white folks that are on food stamps but the working class ones who found themselves beca
. but less than 20% are going into the economy. so women are being educated but they still are not able to put those skills to use for the benefit of their country. >> eliot: because of social prohibitions. >> certainly. we look at it in three ways. we look at our women entrepreneurs, and say what do they need. we say they need capacity building so quite a lot of the women maybe have not ever had business training but we also think what they need is confidence. and that's a trend in general of particularly women in areas where they have been told so much what women can't do that we need to build up their confidence to tell them that women can do what they want to do. and the final thing we want them to do is give them access to capital. 40% of the world's working population are our women. obviously 50% of the population is women, yet when you look to access to capital, a key driver of the economy, only 10% of the capital available in the world is going to women. >> eliot: the micro finance evolution has had a direct impact on women in particular. and it has a re
's something we are very focused on and the best thing we can do for people in those states is education them. and make sure they have the information they need for when and how they can vote. it's unfortunate of course that there is any effort to prevent or limit people's access to voting. whether you are a democrat republican, independent, it doesn't matter to us. we think you should vote. so we have spent a lot of time and resources educating these people in how to vote. >> stephanie: you would think if you were really confident in your positions, you would want as many people as possible to vote. >> well, you said that not me. >> exactly. >> there is clearly motivation going on here. >> stephanie: jen you are press secretary, you know i'm trying to drag you into my own publicity.

. mitt romney was at the education nation forum where he couldn't believe that new york parents might support the teacher's union over reformers like mike bloomberg. one parent assisted a quinnipiac poll showed just that. >> they believe that actually unions are fighting for our kids and that a lot of the reform has been holding back our kids. >> i don't believe it for a minute. i know something about polls. [ laughter ] and i know you can ask questions to get any answer you want. >> eliot: poor mitt. when the question was who do you trust to protect the interest of public school children, parents of new york public school students faved the union over bloomberg by better than three to one. for successful private equity chief, mitt romney seemed to have a problem with numbers and facts. let's go to "buzzfeed" correspondent and rolling stone contributing editor michael hasting and huff post live host abby huntsman. all right. a lot of stuff going out there in the political world. the reality is none of it is chan

from us. we're continuing to mobilize our members. we're continuing to educate and organize. talking about the problems associated with the tactics of these ultra conservatives. i think people are fired up. they're charged up. they're ready to engage in this battle about what kind of country we want to live in. >> jennifer: in fact, we were saying this earlier in a conversation with marc morial of the urban league that the number of voters that were seeing -- that were seen turning out in iowa, lines around the block might be a backlash to what the republicans have proposed with respect to voter suppression. what you're saying is the recent assaults on public unions in states like ohio and wisconsin might also create a backlash against republicans. >> our folks are charged up. they understand the differences between president obama and vice president biden and what's being proposed by mitt romney and paul ryan. and they're engaged. they're talking with their neighbors and their friends and their coworkers and we're
the policies of barack obama than under the disastrous economic foreign policy, environmental educational you name it policies of george w. bush and dick cheney across the board? i mean is that it? is it they're totally out of it, stupid, don't know the issues? watch too much fox news? i mean i really cannot figure it out because by any measure, we talked about this before, by any measure, yeah, times are tough. yes, too many americans are out of work. yes, too many have had to take second jobs or new careers or they're not making as much or don't have as much authority and responsibility, not as good a job as they had the first time around. yeah, we know all of that. but overall americans are a hell of a lot better off than they were four years ago. white males are better off than they were four years ago. romney's policies, if anything, are going -- would set them back were he president because under him, there would be no middle class. there would be the very poor and the very, very, very, very, very rich like him. so this who

to be educated, informed motivated. basically, they already know who they're voting for. what's left are the undecided and unlikely voters and we can expect both campaigns to work hard to get those people to the polls. meanwhile, florida is trying to keep people away. the state's officially restarting its voter purge with less than six weeks to go until election day. florida stopped its effort earlier this year when its purge list was obviously inaccurate. now the "miami herald" is reporting florida wants 198 people taken off its voter rolls but even the new list is not accurate. the herald is quoting one man who already sent in proof of citizenship but is still on the purge list and about 58% of those people are minorities. back with more. stay with us. we have a big, big hour and the i.q. will go way up. how are you ever going to solve the problem if you don't look at all of the pieces? >>tv and radio talk show host stephanie miller rounds out current's morning news block. >>you're welcome current tv audience for the visual candy. >>s
on that issue. i've said all along that republicans' appeal to latino voters has to be on education. here in denver we have one of the highest dropout rates among hispanic kids in the nation. it is inexcusable. we're failing an entire generation of minority kids in colorado and around the nation. i think the democratic party is still held captive by the national education association and the colorado education association here. and education i think is the issue to get to those voters. >> eliot: i'll agree education is an issue when i talk to latino voters. and education as much as anything else is an issue that resonates, touches a nerve. everybody, latino voters, included, of course, cares deeply about. i don't agree the democratic party is hostage. rahm emanuel pushing for reform. teacher's union is not against reform but that debate is a whole separate debate aside for a moment. answer the harder question about immigration. why didn't mitt romney act sooner on the immigration issue both because he don't think he
